Grapes: Chardonnay, Pinot Noir
Grape info: The mainstays of sparkling wine production in Champagne, Chardonnay and Pinot Noir have been successfully cultivated in many wine regions across the world. Chardonnay provides a citrus backbone that, when allowed to develop, exhibits biscuity, brioche notes. Pinot Noir is the ultimate transmitter of terroir, adding depth and complexity.
Info: Sourced from a range of sites in South Australia selected for their generous flavour profiles, the grapes undergo gentle handling in the winery, ensuring the retention of delicate fruit flavours. After blending, the wine spends a period of time on the lees, adding complexity before bottling.
Tasting note: With
notes of spiced apple and a racy acidity, the Mortar and Pestle makes an ideal,
palate-cleansing accompaniment to mince pies.
Character: Lively, crisp, refreshing
